SALT LAKE CITY — Utah defensive coordinator Morgan Scalley will remain on staff but will take a pay cut and must undergo diversity training after being suspended for using a racial slur in a 2013 text message. 

Utah announced Scalley will participate in diversity and inclusion education, and have his salary cut from $1.1 million to $525,000.

His contract also was trimmed from a multiyear deal to a one-year deal, and he will no longer be the designated head coach in waiting. 

Scalley was suspended last month when his use of a racial slur in a text message was posted on social media.
